FOREST, Va. --- The 2012 campaign is underway with five ODAC teams winning their season-opening contests. Catholic University got it all started on Friday night with a win over McDaniel College (45-28), and the winning ways continued on Saturday with Bridgewater College defeating St. Vincent College (23-7), Emory & Henry College topping Ferrum College (45-36), Hampden-Sydney College ousting Averett University (20-6), and Shenandoah winning its first game as a member of the ODAC over Stevenson University (26-16). Three teams begin the season 0-1 as Guilford College fell to Greensboro (14-13) in the annual Gate City Soup Bowl, Randolph-Macon College lost to Johns Hopkins University (36-13), and Washington and Lee University was topped by Franklin & Marshall College (35-28).
This week's Players of the Week come from Catholic and Emory & Henry. CUA senior defensive back Drew Pappas not only help keep points off the board, but we tacked on six when we pounced on a blocked punt in the McDaniel end zone in the third quarter. E&H quarterback Kyle Boden kept the Wasps' offense humming as he fired four touchdown passes without an interception in E&H's sixth straight win over Ferrum in the Western Virginia Education Classic.
